The topics in this section describe how to get started using BMC BladeLogic Server Automation (BSA) to provision and configure systems in your environment.
BMC Education Services provide Foundation courses covering the topics discussed in the walkthroughs available in this section. The education classes discuss when and why to make use of various features as well as the “how-to”. If you are interested in looking deeper into these topics, we recommend that you check out the Server Automation education offerings at BMC Server Automation Training, in particular, the Foundation - Part 3 course.
